The ingredients are as follows (for 3-4 people):

  • 1tbs (15ml) of Butter
  • 1tbs (15ml) of Canola Oil
  • 2 thick slices of bacon, chopped (leave out if you are going vegetarian)
  • 1 medium sized onion – copped
  • 1 large apple, pealed and chopped
  • 1 head of cabbage (6″ or 15 cm in diameter), cut in half then sliced in ¼” strips or slices. Don’t worry to much if they you cut them larger or smaller.
  • 1 Coil of your favourite sausage, cut into 2″ (5 cm) pieces. (leave out if you are going vegetarian)

In a 4-6 liter/quart pot add the butter, oil and bacon. Saute for 2 minutes then add the onion and the apple. Cook for another 3-5 minutes. Now add the cabbage and the sausage. Now simmer on low to medium for about 30-45 minutes. Toss every 5-10 minutes. That’s it, your done!

Wine recommendation: Forget wine, a good beer will do just fine. If your like my wife and don’t drink beer, a glass of water is great or if you insist on wine, go with an Chardonnay like the Un-Oaked Chaberton Chardonnay from the Okanagen Valley in British Columbia, or as Joe Power on Wine Blog suggests, try a Sauvignon Blanc.

Red Wine. Not likely, my self I think a red is out of the question, the tannins will over power the cabbage.

Kiss the Cook,
